This book is one of those "I'll just read one more chapter, then I'll ... go to sleep, do the laundry, make dinner, etc., etc. - with all the best intentions - but you just keep reading! (Sound familiar??)
Second of the "Slightly" series. Excellent book! Fun, romantic and witty read! An absolute must!
Mary Balogh continues her smashing series with Rannulf Bedwyn. He is going to visit his grandmother and thwart her matchmaking efforts when he meets a young lady masquerading as an actress. Theft, mystery, and mayhem collide to throw challenges into their paths.
This is my absolute favorite of the "Slightly " series. I love that the heroine thinks herself not pretty at all, even to the point of being embarrassed about her looks. And the book has some wonderful twists you never expect. It's one of my favorites of all Mary Balogh books.
Readers will be delighted with Balogh's new series that features the half-dozen members of the Bedwyn family first met in A Summer to Remember. In Slightly Wicked, third son Rannulf picks up a fetching young woman whom he believes is an actress stranded in the rain due to a coach crash. Judith Law, a parson's daughter, is traveling to her aunt's home to live as a poor relation and has decided to have one fling, one chance to not spend the remainder of her sure to be desolate life as a virgin. Pretending to be an actress, she accompanies Rannulf to an inn where they make passionate love before she slips away to take up her duties as an unpaid servant in her aunt's country house. When Rannulf turns up as a likely suitor for her cousin, complications abound. The Bedwyn siblings are the most fascinating romance protagonists to come along since Jude Devereaux's Montgomery brothers in the 1980s, and Balogh's sensuous Regency-era romances set the standard. They are not to be missed.
